Okay, so far we know that titans are actually humans and it all started when Ymir Fritz made a deal with the Earth's devil and was given the source of organic matter which in turn gave her the power of the titans thus making her the first titan shifter and killed her off after thirteen years.
BUT, have yall ever stopped and wondered WHAT exactly is in this 'source of organic matter' and WHY it affected SPECIFICALLY the Eldian race or rather WHY its only the eldians that can turn into titans? How the source of organic matter was created
Is it something unique in there DNA, anatomy or genetics? Or some hidden hidden evolutionary trait.
Also, how is it that when Ymir ate the source of organic matter, it suddenly changed the lives of millions like its some butterfly effect?
Yes, everything that's going down the titan war the war with the marleyians is because of a choice that Ymir made, but the whole story of how she got source of organic matter could all be a myth unless eren finally figures out how to tap into the abilities of the founding titan and get answers

ok if im getting this right, how the eldians being affect by ymir eating the source of organic matter has something to do with how her soul got split into nine shifters and further down continuosly split down to the rest of the population and that the source of organic matter altered the genetic code of the eldians thus making them able to turn into titans.
so in short the eldians were orginally normal until ymir ate the source of organic matter which changed and altered their genetic code which kinda made them mutants in a way and that ymir's passing then somehow transferred this gene feom her to the nine titans then went further down to the eldian. okay now that answers why its only specific to the eldians.
buuuuut, the question of how the SOM (source of organic matter) created and what its made of still remains. the video did mention about it coming from some mystical tree or something, but that makes me question further on how it came to that.
also, the video also brought another question. so since the SOM altered the genetic code of eldians through ymir, is it possible that the same could have happened to the marleyans or the other bloodlines. i mean think about it, it took one person to rewrite the genetic code of an entire race jus by eating something that did just that. try to think of that very process happening to other races or bloodlines.
the video wasn't just talking about how the SOM affected the eldians. it was also talking about how it was WOULD have affected other bloodlines and races the same way it did to the eldians.
call this theory crazy and nonsense but it makes sense. what do you think
